Friday Pretties Dreaming...

Here I go again...
Dreaming of a little cottage on a lake.
The back wall of doors extends the living area to the porch. The substantial trim work above the doors adds height for a seamless transition to the tall ceilings inside.

Sunshine Day Living Room

white kitchen with French doors and a painted floor
In this beachside bunkroom in South Carolina, a pop of solid color against the small-scale print anchors the space while still keeping the mood light and the look cohesive. The rug picks up on the other blues so that the patterns can coordinate, not clash.

Coastal Master Bedroom

This tent-like tipi has an air mattress inside for added comfort and makes a great place for children to play (or nap!).
What are you dreaming of?

Have a wonderful 
Mother's Day Weekend.
Celebrate Your Mom!

Hi Joyce!
Oh this is very dreamy!
I'm looking at kitchens for a renewal of our own...and I love the white on white kitchen of this cottage.
Very clean and simple.
The yellow brings a smile!

Hmmm, i often dream that same dream here, a little place on a lake, away from everyday turmoil .... Yet, at the moment i dream of more creative time. Isn't time such a luxury? Have a lovely weekend, let's celebrate each other - so many GORGEOUS mums around here. Cheers!
